Welcome to some quotes by the late President JOHN F. KENNEDY.
Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.

So, let us not be blind to our differences - but let us also direct attention to our common interests and to the means by which those differences can be resolved.

The ancient Greek definition of happiness was the full use of your powers along lines of excellence.

The stories of past courage can define that ingredient-they can teach, they can offer hope, they can provide inspiration. But they cannot supply courage itself. For this each man must look into his own soul.
There are risks and costs to a program of action. But they are far less than the long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction.
We believe that if men have the talent to invent need machines that put men out of work, they have the talent to put those men back to work.
Think about this!
